Hello Heaven! A delightful dessert for a cold fall/winter evening. Simple directions will have this baby whipped up in no time!
Preheat oven to 350 F. While the oven is preheating, put the butter in the bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish and put the dish in the oven.
When the butter has melted, take the dish out of the oven. Add the bread cubes and stir (with a spatula or other hand tool) until they are evenly coated with butter. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients.
Pour them over buttered bread cubes in baking dish. Toss to make sure all pieces are evenly coated with the delicious custard mix.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until custard is set.
I like to serve with fresh whipped cream sprinkled with cinnamon and/or nutmeg!

This dish is so easy to make and, in comparison to its traditional cousin, can be made as low fat as you desire (using fat free Cool Whip and sugar free pudding mix). The molasses cookies add a spiciness not often found in a traditional pie crust. If you don’t like the flavor of molasses, you could always substitute ginger snaps, but the soft molasses cookies are a delicious addition.
